A whole lot of deserved name calling, of course - but a whole lot of substance you simply won’t engage with because you’re not emotionally mature enough to grapple with the specifics on its own merits: the seperation policy was put into place a year before it was announced.

There’s nothing exhausting about it. It’s easy to not own stock directly, so it’s a perfectly reasonable guideline. People don’t control the contents of an index fund. What’s in it is not up to them. If you’re looking for a loophole like - “just own an index fund that’s all car stock!” .. well guess what, that’s why Read more
